Glenroy railway station is located on the Craigieburn line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the northern Melbourne suburb of Glenroy, opening on 24 January 1887.[1]

The railway past the site of Glenroy station was opened in 1872, as part of the North East railway to Wodonga.[2]

A goods siding was provided in 1908, and was extended in 1950, for the nearby flour mill. Hand gates protected the Glenroy Road level crossing until 1965, when boom barriers were provided.[2] The original station buildings were provided in 1886, being replaced by the present buildings in 1976.[3] The station was upgraded to a Premium station in 1999.[4] It is highly likely that the station will be rebuilt a second time within the next six years due to an election promise to remove the Glenroy Road level crossing where a rail based option will likely be chosen, forcing Glenroy station to be moved either under or over ground.
